Three teens are facing charges after firefighters say they started a fire on a porch.
Seventeen-year-olds Tavaris King and Terrance Melford and 16-year-old Tahaj Holloway are charged with arson.
Police were called to Parsalls Avenue just before 6:00 a.m. for a report of shots fired. At the same time, a neighbor observed a fire on the porch. When firefighters arrived, they found a shirt on fire. Investigators found several rounds of live ammunition inside the shirt that was on fire. Firefighters say one or more rounds had gone off because of the fire. There was minor damage to the porch of the occupied home and there were no injuries.
Witnesses saw the teens on bikes fleeing the scene. Police located the three a short time later.
